There are so many fees added up against the revenue brought in from eBay book sales that selling inexpensive stuff is really quite a chore for the dough, not much bang for the buck. The real problem is that the fees are only a little here and a little there so you sometimes don’t even realize how much your being dinged. Open Eye Books, an eBay store, pointed out a terrific little online calculator for seeing the fees for any particular sale. It’s called eBay Calc – check it out. It definitely gets a spiffy tag from us and will be added to our Tools page.
